THE EXTRA TASTE of peanut butter in the middle of the cookie is a delicious surprise the first time you bite into one.
It's a nice, soft cookie and fun to make with little helpers. Kids love to put that extra dab of peanut butter in the middle and snitch some at the same time.

"This recipe combines several favorite flavors-peanut butter, butterscotch and chocolate-in one big cookie," writes Patricia Schroedl of Jefferson, Wisconsin. "Before baking, I like to press a few extra M&M's on top for added color."
Baking mix makes these soft, moist cookies a snap to stir-up, yet they're pretty enough for parties. "I'm often asked to bring them to wedding and baby showers, and they're popular around the holiday's, too. I sometimes mix the dough the day before and chill it until I have to bake the cookies."
